Cyber Security Professional

Cyber Security prepares students to plan, coordinate and implement security measures for networking systems.  Students first learn the basics of repair and maintenance of computer hardware, software, and operating systems along with the installation, configuration and troubleshooting of network hardware. They also learn the basics of networking, including installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of hardware peripherals and protocols, as well as network administration duties and providing support for network users.  Students obtain skills in protecting the integrity of networks, programs, and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. This major prepares students to provide technical assistance to computer users in various work environments.  They gain an understanding of the principles of risk management, security architectures, incident handling, disaster recovery, and secure systems administration. Students gain the technical skills required for CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+.

Students who receive a Federal Pell Grant from MDTC and who withdraw (officially or unofficially) will be subject to the “Return of Title IV” regulations. For those students who have been officially or unofficially withdrawn, the student’s last date of attendance will be used for Return of Title IV purposes as determined by MDTC’s attendance records. Generally, the student and/or school will have to return any amount of the Pell Grant that is defined as “unearned” per Return of Unearned Funds Policy section on page 34.  NOTE: all financial aid students should contact the Financial Aid Coordinator to discuss their Return of Title IV funds calculation before withdrawing.
